Viet Nam imported US$376 million worth of fruits from Thailand in the first half of this year, which was double the figures of the same period last year.

With the turnover, Thailand has become the leading supplier of fruits to Viet Nam, accounting for over half of Viet Nam’s six-month fruit imports at $507 million, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

During the reviewed period, Viet Nam’s fruit imports from other markets such as India and South Korea maintained positive upward growth of more than 85 per cent.

Meanwhile, Viet Nam’s fruit and vegetable exports in the period between January and June experienced a yearly increase of 44 per cent to $1.7 billion. China, Japan and South Korea remained the top importers of Vietnamese fruit and vegetables, making up nearly 85 per cent of the country’s export turnover. — VNS
